One Good Move

I got the link to One Good Move from the Blog column of The Big Issue, and I have to admit it is my essential US Politics reading each evening. The editor is a big fan of House and often puts up clips, but the majority of the entertainment is from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, both US political satire shows.

If you like the taster below, I recommend dipping into the archives, as many haha's will ensue. For my money the selections below are the two things that make One Good Move's presence on my favourites toolbar the wisest addition I have made in a long time.

*QuickTime is needed*

Be Afraid, This Is How They Really See Us

This is a clip from The Daily Show with the silver fox Jon Stewart *reowr* He is reporting on the US soccer team, but it is his description of Australians, met with hilarious laughter by the studio audience, that made me shudder instead of laugh.

In my opinion, one can never know too much about how other countries view you ...

Stephen Colbert Is God

I was tipped off to Stephen Colbert's now notorious address to the 2006 White House Correspondent's Association Dinner in one of the many political lectures I have been attending, but it was two weeks later that One Good Move entered my life and provided me with the astounding footage itself. Enjoy, it is superb stuff.

Futbol!

Ah, NOW we are part of the Beautiful Game!

In the 83rd minute we were bored and falling asleep, in the 93rd minute we were punching the air and I was chanting 'Futbol! Futbol! Futbol!'

I am glad I got to see Australia's maiden victory in the World Cup. Next game ... Braaaaaaaasiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil!
